Dolph Ziggler
As of right now, it does not appear that Dolph Ziggler is a threat to steal a spot at Elimination Chamber 2014 pay per view. While he is rumored to be forming a team with Miz soon, the former world champion is currently not involved in a story line or feud. Ziggler has also lost all but one of his televised matches so far this year.

In a rather pleasantly surprising move, Antonio Cesaro has earned himself a main event spot at Elimination Chamber 2014. Despite being stuck in a mid card tag team with Jack Swagger, he defeated Dolph Ziggler in a qualifying match on Smackdown this week.

Darren Young
Earlier in the year, there were rumors that Titus ONeil was going to be receiving a push from WWE. Reports surfaced that it was dropped because of the poor reaction that his match against Darren Young at Elimination Chamber 2014 received from the audience. It has been several months now, and it looks like the rumors were true. Since that pay per view, ONeil has only won two matches on television.
June 4, 2014
Vince McMahon
It appears that the WWE Network was launched at just the right time. Buyrates for Royal Rumble 2014 and Elimination Chamber 2014 suffered a considerable drop from the previous year. Vince McMahon no longer has to tout these numbers to his investors, though, because the company can state that the viewers have shifted over to the WWE Network.
May 1, 2014
Andre the Giant
While management has halted his push because of a poor reaction from the audience at Elimination Chamber 2014, there is still a chance that Darren Young will be working the Wrestlemania 30 show. He and his former teammate Titus ONeil are both candidates to be entrants in the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal that weekend.
March 16, 2014
Darren Young
Since management was disappointed at the crowd reaction that was received during the match between Darren Young and Titus ONeil at Elimination Chamber 2014, the former Prime Time Players are being scaled back a bit, and their respective pushes are being placed on hold. Their feud has not being featured on Monday Night Raw or Smackdown since the pay per view.
March 9, 2014
Maryse Ouellet
After getting married to the lovely Maryse Ouellet in the Bahamas, the Miz opted to skip his honeymoon and head to Minnesota to work the kickoff show panel for Elimination Chamber 2014. It was a rather interesting move, as many felt that he could have been given the time off to celebrate his nuptials because of his limited role on the pay per view.
February 27, 2014
Bray Wyatt
During the Smackdown taping, it was announced that there would be a big Elimination Chamber 2014 rematch on Monday Night Raw featuring Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan taking on Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose. The belief is that this is being done to further the friction between Ambrose and Reigns.
February 26, 2014
Curtis Axel
Once you get into that WWE dog house, it's pretty hard to get out. Management has sent more messages to Ryback this month. First, he and Curtis Axel are utilized as a filler tag team during the Elimination Chamber 2014 kickoff match. This week, the two of them are paired up with Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre in an eight man tag team match on WWE Superstars.
February 26, 2014
Billy Gunn
On Monday Night Raw, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso were given a victory over Road Dogg and Billy Gunn, in order to get some heat back after losing at Elimination Chamber 2014. Apparently, WWE does not feel that it is important enough to include in the Hulu broadcast of the show this week. Despite that, the Usos are still expected to be on the Wrestlemania 30 main card.
February 25, 2014
Batista
Those who watched Elimination Chamber 2014 and Monday Night Raw this week, witnessed the WWE audience turning on Batista because they do not approve of his push and his attitude towards the fans since returning. Mick Foley posted this message on Twitter, stating that he has never seen anything like it before in his long career.
February 24, 2014
Big Show
Even though he was not booked for Elimination Chamber 2014, Big Show is still very much in contention for a coveted match at Wrestlemania 30. Right now, WWE simply had nothing for him from the creative department. Plus, he replaced the Great Khali on an overseas promotional tour of India. He should be back on television soon.
February 24, 2014
Billy Gunn
Even though they lost at Elimination Chamber 2014, there are talks that Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso could be given a rematch tonight on Monday Night Raw. Since WWE wants it to be a special episode, they're wanting at least one title change to take place. Road Dogg and Billy Gunn could be the casualties of the creative department tonight.
February 24, 2014
Batista
At this point in time, it is all but assured that Batista will be headlining Wrestlemania 30. Randy Orton is expected to retain the belt at Elimination Chamber 2014, so the two of them will be working the main event in April together. The belief is that he will be given the WWE Championship that night and be pushed through the fall when his movie comes out.
February 24, 2014
Daniel Bryan
A lot of fans were disappointed with how things ended at Elimination Chamber 2014. While the performers did a great job, many were disappointed that WWE opted to have Randy Orton defeat Daniel Bryan to retain his championship. Mick Foley shared those sentiments by posting this message on his Twitter account.
February 24, 2014
Konnan
Just like so many wrestlers now do on Twitter, Konnan posted this message on the WWE pay per view tonight. He was not pleased with Elimination Chamber 2014, and even went as far as to say that this is the reason why he does not pay money to watch the product nowadays. Konnan even stated that the show was a rip off.
February 24, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
As predicted by many, Randy Orton walked away from Elimination Chamber 2014 with the WWE Championship. Sheamus, Christian and Antonio Cesaro were the first eliminated. Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan helped to eliminate John Cena. Finally, Kane attacked Daniel Bryan, which enabled Orton to pick up the victory and earn his spot in the main event next month.
February 23, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
As expected, Batista defeated Alberto Del Rio in a grudge match at Elimination Chamber 2014. Del Rio attempted to trick Batista at the beginning of the match by coming out in crutches and a track suit. Pin fall ending came after Del Rio was nailed by an exposed turnbuckle and a Batista Bomb. Lot of crowd heat against Batista during the match.
February 23, 2014
AJ Lee
In a filler match at Elimination Chamber 2014, AJ Lee was able to retain the WWE Divas Championship because she lost by disqualification when Tamina Snuka attacked Cameron, who was a last minute challenger, on the outside of the ring.

Dolph Ziggler
"Dolph Ziggler has got to be one of the toughest men to put on a pair of boots, but he's going to be like Mick Foley in another five years because that kid beats his body up more than anybody on the crew. I do know this, in my dealings with him, when I'm his producer, he gives everything he's got. He does some really phenomenal and athletic stuff." - Arn Anderson thinks WWE should push Ziggler
July 20, 2014
Summer Rae
While a lot of fans are hoping to see WWE giving Dolph Ziggler a push again, the on screen relationship between he and Summer Rae is more about the diva than the former world heavyweight champion. Management needed someone to pair her up with, so that she can continue her feud against Fandango and Layla El. WWE still wants to give her a nice push heading into the next season of Total Divas.
July 6, 2014
Ric Flair
Last week, Miz made his long rumored return to Monday Night Raw. However, he came back to WWE alone. Ric Flair was not by his side as expected. The legendary performer is still expected to make his television return soon, but it looks like he might not be paired up with Miz after all. Flair had petitioned the company to work with Dolph Ziggler, but WWE went in a different direction by pairing him up with Summer Rae instead.
July 5, 2014
Ryback
Some more names have been added to the upcoming WWE Intercontinental Championship battle royal. Big E, Curtis Axel, Dolph Ziggler, Rob Van Dam and Ryback are now in the match at WWE Battleground 2014. They join Kofi Kingston, Damien Sandow, Great Khali and Antonio Cesaro. As of right now, the company is favoring the idea of giving the title to Cesaro.
July 2, 2014
Fandango
After their segment on Monday Night Raw this week, there is a lot of speculation going around about Dolph Ziggler and Summer Rae. There has been no confirmation that they are dating in real life. The belief is that this is a move by WWE to make both of them slightly more relevant and to have a foil for Fandango and Layla El. This on screen relationship between Ziggler and Summer could be a short term thing.
July 1, 2014
Kane
In a very exciting match, Seth Rollins outlasted Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler, Kofi Kingston, Rob Van Dam and Jack Swagger to capture the briefcase at Money in the Bank 2014. WWE wants to continue the war between Ambrose and the Authority, so they had Kane coming out and providing assistance to Rollins. Despite the heel tactic to win the match, the Rollins victory was actually cheered by a good amount of fans.
June 29, 2014
Triple H
Thanks to the help of Kane, Seth Rollins was able to climb the ladder uninterrupted and win the briefcase at Money in the Bank 2014. The Big Red Monster came to the ring and attacked Dean Ambrose to clear the path. Kofi Kingston, Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger and Rob Van Dam were all laid out on the floor during the finale. WWE power couple Triple H and Stephanie McMahon came out afterwards to congratulate Rollins.
June 29, 2014
Mick Foley
Through his personal blog on Facebook, Mick Foley revealed that he was supporting Dolph Ziggler. The WWE legend also revealed why he was rooting for the former world heavyweight champion. He stated that fans were behind Ziggler during his push because they knew that he had worked hard to get to the top. Foley wants WWE to get fans to believe that hard work pays off by pushing Ziggler again.
June 24, 2014
Miz
The long rumored return of Ric Flair is reportedly close to happening, as word coming out of WWE is that the former world heavyweight champion has passed the medical tests that the company requires before taking a performer on the road full time. The strong rumors are that he will be paired up with the Miz again, despite asking WWE to put him with Dolph Ziggler.
June 10, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
A lot of fans are already aware that Dolph Ziggler has been in the doghouse with WWE because of comments that he made during interviews. Well, it looks like he could be in for more punishment after his latest one. The former world heavyweight champion actually acknowledged that the company dropped him down the ladder. WWE may not take too well to one of their performers admitting that he is being punished by management.
June 7, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
On Monday Night Raw, Alberto Del Rio qualified for the big ladder match at Money in the Bank 2014 by defeating Dolph Ziggler. The move comes as a bit of a surprise as many felt that WWE would utilize Ziggler in a match that suits his skills. Instead, management opted to go with Del Rio, who does not have a lot of momentum or popularity right now.
June 3, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
Since the pay per view was in Chicago, many within WWE expected the fans to chant for CM Punk last night. They did just that throughout Payback 2014. However, some within the company were surprised to see a passionate please from the audience for WWE to utilize Dolph Ziggler. They chanted for him almost as much as they did for Punk, the hometown hero.
June 2, 2014
Adrian Neville
"I was shown a package of things he's done and I was wondering if I could keep up in the ring with him. Once he gets here he'll not only already be established, but Superstars like myself will already have ideas in our head about things we can do with him. And that will make it that much better." - Dolph Ziggler praising WWE NXT developmental star Adrian Neville
May 30, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
Add Jim Ross to the long list of people who believe that Dolph Ziggler is the most underutilized performer in WWE. The longtime commentator did a questions and answers bit with his readers, and the topic of Ziggler was brought up. Ross flat out stated that he has not been used properly by WWE over the last couple of years, a sentiment shared by the majority of wrestling fans.
May 29, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
"The purpose of my post. I'm not to suggest that Dolph Ziggler join Global Force Wrestling, just using him as an example of how subjective WWE decisions can be. I do agree that Dolph Ziggler is a terrible ring name. A couple of years ago, I sent a very detailed e-mail to the powers that be with a suggestion of how he could get out of the name and simultaneously garner some mainstream media attention, but never heard back from those in charge." - Mick Foley explaining his post about Dolph Ziggler on Twitter
May 23, 2014
Ric Flair
Now that he is on the verge of making a full time return to WWE, Ric Flair has been in discussion with management on how to utilize his character. The former world heavyweight champion had been petitioning to be assigned as a manager for Dolph Ziggler. However, WWE isn't interested in pushing Ziggler, so they want to put Flair with someone else instead.
May 23, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
If you routinely watch Monday Night Raw, then you already know that Adam Rose has a bunny in his entourage. Rumors are floating around that the person portraying that character is actually Zack Ryder. However, the long time WWE star is denying it and has been doing so for the last several weeks. Dolph Ziggler recently flamed the fans of those rumors by telling fans on Twitter that it is Ryder.
May 21, 2014
James Storm

May 19, 2014
Summer Rae
Now that Summer Rae has completed the filming of Marine 4 with the Miz, she will be returning to Monday Night Raw and Smackdown very soon. Upon her return to television, expect her to be utilized as a baby face in a feud against Layla El and Fandango. WWE could pair her up with a male performer, such as Dolph Ziggler, to even the odds in the feud.
